Aggressive Staffordshire bull terrier

by Julie
(South Australia)

I have a six year old Golden Retriever and a 4 year old pure bred staffy. I inherited the staffy eighteen months ago. He was great with my retriever until a year ago when she had cruciate ligament surgery. They are mostly fine together but recently he has stated attacking her for apparently no reason. They eat separately as he is territorial with his food. They are walked every morning. They spend a lot of time inside with us and likes to be cuddled at night.
I am worried as these attacks seem to be getting worse.
I am thinking that I may be forced to find a home for him with no other pets.
Is there anything that can be done. Recently another dog from the same breeder had to given up for the same reason. It has been suggested it could be in his breeding. I would hate for him to go to the wrong home as he could easily be turned into a fighting dog.

Nothing In Life Is Free
by: Adam G. Katz

Employ the "Nothing In Life Is Free" approach, so that your dog starts to view you as the "pack leader." If your dog doesn't see you as the leader, then your corrections will be meaningless. So, if you're doing subtle things (inadvertently) to undermine your leadership role around the house-- it will be counter-productive.
